Exchange 2010 - FIPS 140.2 - Configuration query

Hi all, we have an interesting upcoming scenario of which I'd like some advice on how best to proceed!

I've been researching Exchange 2010 and FIPS compliancy and have deduced that OWA won't  work correctly neither will ECP. This raises a problem, as there are 4 remote sites (None of which currently have a server).

Since OWA is broken by enforcing the policy in question (See: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977961) - Am I correct in thinking Outlook over HTTP/RPC will not function correctly?

Configuring/Installing Exchange 2010 to comply with the FIPS 140.2 encryption is no biggie - But how exactly the clients are to access this is my primary issue.

Next question is whether to host the Exchange server in a datacentre - Or alternatively in one of the 4 offices - And then to create a site to site VPN between all 4 sites - Keeping the traffic 'local' to Outlook et al.

I still have to query a few requirements but initially, this seems like a bit of a b**ch of a job!

Thanks in advance  :o)

Looks like it can be done and OWA, ECP and Outlook Anywhere will work too with the following update: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/981119
